    Hello, I just moved to Sunderland two weeks ago from another country. I want to give something a try and I always wanted to try BJJ or olympic wrestling. When I'm looking for wrestling I only get results for the WWE type, which I am not interested at all.
    Do you know about any clubs in Sunderland or in near? Thanks.

    Would defo look at Grapple Fit if I was in Sunderland mate. They do all sorts of grappling there and they have trained UFC fighters:

    There's one in Middlesborough if you check britishwrestling.org. Bit far though unless you have a car.

    Make sure when you google you search for things like: freestyle wrestling, Olympic wrestling etc etc. "wrestling" usually gives you the pro stuff....or as i found at a tender age, sites for men wanting to wrestle other men, preferable whole wearing rubber pants or nothing at all.

    yeah that's way too far. i was looking under the "freestyle wrestling" and "olympic wrestling", but I got only one club in Newcastle which seems to be no longer working..

    I would say go anyway and have a look. Sambo is essentially MMA in a gi. Plenty of their work is on various social media to look at.

    I'll ask around as my mate/ex-coach is a British Wrestling Ref. Although now-a-days, I would have a look at MMA classes and see what their timetable is like.
